Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Deadbase or Similar out there?

Last time I tried to use the old DB it would not search anything for me. At one time they were going to offer a Mac based DB but I don't think it ever materialized. Is there anywhere else you can get an app like that so you can search shows by all the different criteria like venue, date, song day of the week etc.?

Not an app but I think deadlists.com is probably the best available website for such searches. Its not perfect but better than some of the other sites that are out there. It is also linked to all the shows here.

Cool. Thanks. I have a couple of hardcover DBs that I use, but I have found that searching a database by different fields like venue is really helpful especially as you get older and can't spew out the stats like you used to.

I tried Deadlists but seemed clunkier than DB until IT clunked to not working at all.

I have seen the Deadbases for 700 - 1000$ & thought about selling one I have just b/c it is so ridiculous.

I would pay for an electronic DB. I know other more 21st century heads would buy an i-phone or other app that was the same idea.

The deadbase site wasn't working for a while, but it seems to have been fixed & searches are working again.
I think deadlists.net is better in many ways, though it lacks a couple deadbase features.

I used to recommend a hard copy of DB in the past. I couldn't find any copies on ebay (?, probably my error) and these prices on Amazon have increased at least 200% in the past 6 months. All sorts of collectables have been nosediving in value, but not this one apparently. Curious.

All I can say is good luck.

"All sorts of collectables have been nosediving in value, but not this one apparently."

I saw the "GD Family Album" today at the library's used books bookstore. While $3 seems cheap, it was 3 times the price of non-Dead hardbacks!

Enjoy,

I sure do wish the Deadbase folk/s would permit single-copy printing of the last title (XI?).
